About this recipe: A Cuban friend first served this to me when I was just seven. Twenty years later, it is still a favourite. Don't be put off by this seemingly strange concoction; this is brilliant! Another great thing about this recipe is that it's infinitely scalable. Just use an equal amount of each ingredient!


Serves: 6 

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 450g boneless pork joint, cubed
  • 450g onions, diced
  • 450g bananas, peeled and diced
  • 1 (400g) tin chopped tomatoes
  • cayenne pepper to taste
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, and brown the cubed pork on all sides. Mix in the onions, and cook and stir until tender.
  2. Mix the bananas and tomatoes with juice into the frying pan. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pork is very tender. Season with cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
